Bajofondo

Bajofondo, formerly Bajofondo Tango Club, is a South American music band consisting of eight musicians from Argentina and Uruguay. The change in the name, more inclusive and with an immediate impact, mirrors the path Bajofondo's music has followed.

The band, which prefers to refer itself as a "collective of composers, singers and artists", has a characteristic style that can be considered, besides the aforementioned mixture of tango and electronica, as an innovative form of DNB, house, chill out and trip-hop. ...show more
